  1. New Earthquake Strikes Mexico City, Halting Relief Efforts A powerful earthquake hit Mexico City on Saturday, temporarily stopping relief efforts from a deadly quake that rocked Mexico’s capital city earlier this week. Saturday’s 6.1 magnitude earthquake was an aftershock of the 8.1-magnitude earthquake that took place on Sept. 7 off Mexico’s eastern coast. About 60 people died as a result of damage from that earthquake. Saturday’s quake, which took place at about 8 a.m., was initially reported to have a magnitude of 6.2. Quake alarms sounded in Mexico City and officials ordered workers out of swaying buildings. https://www.westernjournalism.com/new-earthquake-strikes-mexico-city-halting-relief-efforts/?utm_source=Facebook&utm_medium=WesternJournalism&utm_content=2017-09-23&utm_campaign=manualpost
  2. Bali volcano alert sees thousands evacuated from homes Thousands of people have been evacuated from villages near a volcano on Bali amid fears it could erupt for the first time in 50 years. Authorities warned tourists to avoid hiking or camping within four miles (6km) of Mount Agung as tremors shook the area and smoke rose above the crater, which is 3,000m (9,840ft) above sea level. "Volcanic activity remains high and there are indications of magma rising to the surface and causing tremors," said Sutopo Purwo Nugroho of the National Disaster Management Agency http://news.sky.com/story/bali-volcano-alert-sees-thousands-evacuated-from-homes-11047375
  3. The last surviving sea silk seamstress Each spring, under the cover of darkness and guarded by members of the Italian Coast Guard, 62-year-old Chiara Vigo slips on a white tunic, recites a prayer and plunges headfirst into the crystalline sea off the tiny Sardinian island of Sant’Antioco. Using the moonlight to guide her, Vigo descends up to 15m below the surface to reach a series of secluded underwater coves and grassy lagoons that the women in her family have kept secret for the past 24 generations. She then uses a tiny scalpel to carefully trim the razor-thin fibres growing from the tips of a highly endangered Mediterranean clam known as the noble pen shell, or pinna nobilis. It takes about 100 dives to harvest 30g of usable strands, which form when the mollusc’s secreted saliva comes in contact with salt water and solidifies into keratin. Only then is Vigo ready to begin cleaning, spinning and weaving the delicate threads. Known as byssus, or sea silk, it’s one of the rarest and most coveted materials in the world. Today, Vigo is believed to be the last person on Earth who still knows how to harvest, dye and embroider sea silk into elaborate patterns that glisten like gold in the sunlight. Women in Mesopotamia used the exceptionally light fabric to embroider clothes for their kings some 5,000 years ago. It was harvested to make robes for King Solomon, bracelets for Nefertiti, and holy vestments for priests, popes and pharaohs. It’s referenced on the Rosetta Stone, mentioned 45 times in the Old Testament and thought to be the material that God commanded Moses to drape on the altar in the Tabernacle. http://www.bbc.com/travel/story/20170906-the-last-surviving-sea-silk-seamstress?ocid=fbtvl
  4. Idaho experiences “earthquake swarm” – now increasing each day An “earthquake swarm” in Southeast Idaho has caused more than 200 tremors to rock the area since it began on Sep. 2. It looked like the earthquakes were ending, or at least slowing down, on Thursday and Friday. But on Saturday, Idahoans experienced a series of 19 quakes, with 34 more that followed on Sunday, bringing the earthquake total since the swarm began to 204 quakes. http://dennismichaellynch.com/idaho-experiences-earthquake-swarm-now-increasing-day/
  5. Hurricane Irma bodycount to rise as Tsunami-height 20ft waves hit Turks in HOURS HURRICANE Irma will bring a catastrophic TSUNAMI to the British territory Turks and Caicos and the Bahamas in hours with 20 foot waves hitting Nassau and the entire east of the islands later tonight. The tiny group of islands and bigger neighbour Bahamas face the most brutal assault from Hurricane Irma so far from super powerful 20 foot high waves. So far the islands struck by Irma, including Antigua and Barbuda, St Barts and St Kitts, have faced catastrophic damage from hyper-powerful winds – but wave damage has been relatively light as waves have only measured four to six feet. But as Hurricane Irma veers slightly east, and strengthens ever more thanks to extra atmospheric moisture and warmer oceans, Bahamas and Turks and Caicos face severe wave damage. http://www.express.co.uk/news/weather/851277/Hurricane-Irma-track-latest-Bahamas-Turks-and-Caicos
  6. Prime Minister of Barbuda & Antigua After Hurricane Irma: Island is ‘Literally Rubble,’ ‘Barely Habitable’ Hurricane Irma has left Barbuda and Antigua devastated.

  8. Brookings is a small coastal town 40 miles north of where I live. It has been very smoky here and we have several fires burning around us. This is the Chetco Bar Fire as seen from Brookings, Oregon. The relentless inferno (5 miles northeast of town) has burned over 102,000 acres and is 0% contained. The city and surrounding areas are under various evacuations. This is the NUMBER ONE priority fire in the U.S. with 1,400 people assigned to it. http://www.fireweatheravalanche.org/fire/incident/16020/chetco-bar-fire
  9. Harvey floodwaters overflow Houston reservoir, separate levee breach reported Overflow from Houston reservoir forces families to evacuate An already-swollen reservoir west of downtown Houston overtopped its spillway Tuesday, sending an "uncontrolled release" of Harvey's floodwaters into nearby neighborhoods that may be underwater for "weeks," as a separate levee breach south of the city prompted an urgent warning for residents to leave immediately. Floodwaters in the the Addicks Reservoir, located about 19 miles west of downtown, went over the top of the 108-foot spillway for the first time in history, threatening immediate surrounding subdivisions. http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/08/29/harvey-floodwaters-put-houston-reservoirs-in-uncharted-territory.html

  11. Hurricane Harvey Sets New Record for Tropical Storm Rainfall Harvey has set yet another U.S. record for rainfall from a tropical system. A preliminary report from a rain gauge on the Cedar Bayou, east of Highlands, Texas, reported 51.88 inches of rain as of 3 p.m. Tuesday, according to the National Weather Service. Earlier in the day, a weather station southeast of Houston at Mary's Creek at Winding Road, reported 49.32 inches of rain, the weather service said. Both reports break the previous continental U.S. record of 48 inches set in 1978 in Medina, Texas, by Tropical Storm Amelia. http://www.nbcdfw.com/weather/stories/Hurricane-Harvey-Sets-Record-for-Tropical-Storm-Rainfall-442148193.html

  14. Hannity Taunts Mueller With Cryptic Message After Julian Assange Offers Intel on DNC Leak As previously reported, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher says WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange could be pardoned by President Trump for providing information about the source of Democrat National Committee emails leaked during the 2016 presidential election. In a rare move, Julian Assange is ready to reveal the source of who leaked the DNC emails to Wikileaks during the 2016 Presidential election. Julian Assange repeatedly claims Russia was not the source. http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/08/hannity-taunts-mueller-cryptic-message-julian-assange-offers-intel-dnc-leak/ http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2017/08/boom-kim-dotcom-warns-end-mueller-wikileaks-destroy-far-left-narrative/
  15. Well I hope Trump takes the chicken in the same way his supporters did. A reflection on those who would insult and not on himself. That chicken does look pretty bad ass. As far as I can see our President is the one person in our government trying to return to People representation politics and they are going to fight him tooth and nail. Giant Inflatable Donald Trump Chicken Appears Outside White House It's a 25-foot inflatable chicken with gold-colored hair, eyebrows and lips holding out its little chicken-wing hands — and somehow it looks exactly like President Trump. The giant blow-up appeared suddenly yesterday on the Ellipse, a wide grassy area between the White House and the Washington Monument. And while the liberals who erected it no doubt meant the symbol of Trump as a chicken to be a supreme insult, we gotta' say — the president should embrace this guy cuz' he looks pretty badass. http://www.dailywire.com/news/19561/giant-donald-trump-chicken-appears-front-white-joseph-curl#
